Moving to Tuesdays...

I guess the blog update has a new home on Tuesday. I dont have much to ramble about this week. I worked most of it until today, which was spent running around like a mad woman doing my errands. Dog got groomed. Taxes completed. Groceries. Goodwill. Pretty uneventful. But that is a good thing. Office is all set up. I should take a picture of it. :) I even have an official name plate sitting right out side my cubie. Which feels so cool.  Now all I need is my own parking spot....hmmmm.

My class graduates next week and then it is full steam ahead. And a new chapter is about to begin...

Happy Belated St. Patty!

Yes, yes, I know. I missed my first Monday of my blog writing. This will not be the norm, I promise. I had unexpected company come in on Sunday and of course, we went out for St. Patty's day. So yesterday was not a day to sit on a computer. Charlie and I actually went out this time. I had a really nice time, SOBER, might I add. I was designated driver. It was a blast people watching...and there were some interesting characters out that night.

For some reason, I have been really grouchy these past few days. Ever since I started working on my taxes. Talk about a Debbie downer. Work is going well. On Monday I was able to spend the day on my new position. Love it so far. And the rest of this week is going to be testing in a metal tube. (Classroom in an airplane) So it is going to be a long stretch until Easter. We finally did our grocery shopping tonight. I am ready to get back on track with eating healthy again.

And since this blog is about my goals. I am struggling with my focus. The books I am reading suggest focusing on one thing at a time until it becomes established. But it is difficult to choose only one. Here are the ones I want to work on. De-clutter. Work on my art every night. Cook more at home. Save more money. Run/workout 5 times a week. Eat healthier. They are all important to me. Problem is, my energy is so spread out, that I am not successful with any of them. So my decision is: indecision. And I am not happy with that either. So I need to figure out a plan soon. Time is a ticking and every moment is precious.

I got the job!

Yes, you read that correctly, I got that office job I wanted. I now have my very own office...actually it is a cubie...but it is still mine, all mine! I interviewed last Thursday, they told me on Friday, and I was able to start setting up shop today. And on top of that, I still get to finish teaching my class. So I literally have the best of both worlds. I teach my favorite subject this week, First Aid, for the very last time. Today, a flight attendant trainee came up to me after class and told me what a wonderful teacher I was. What a bittersweet feeling! I am so excited to be part of a new team...but I will so miss the teaching life. Sigh. Maybe one day I will be back....

The update on my Honda. They paid for half. So I am still a loyal customer. Now, I would of been a raving customer if they paid for the who she-bang. But, for now, I will just settle for being satisfied customer. Doing my research saved us over 500 bucks. Whew. Thank goodness for that. My CRV is running great now. (Knock on wood.)

Today was such a wonderful day. I am actually looking forward to jumping out of bed tomorrow to go to work. Call me crazy! The daylight savings time is sure a tough adjustment to get used to. So much for me getting up early. I have no idea when I will accomplish that goal. One of these days...I know.

Rainy day Monday

A cold front came through today. And so came the rain. I took my car to the shop since the "Check Engine" light came on again today. Second time this year. And we have only had 2 complete months in 2008. This time I did my research, and discovered that Honda put a malfunctioning throttle unit in the 2nd generation Honda CRVs. I am hoping that this will mean Honda will pay for it. My customer loyalty is on the line. I hope to find the verdict tomorrow.

My class starts tomorrow. Class 2 of 2008. I am so excited to teach. This could be my last initial class ever. SO, I will enjoy every moment of it.

Lacy wants to go to Vegas for her birthday. I want to take Charlie. He has no itch to go. First man ever, I think, in the history of men, who could care less about going to Vegas.

I got the stomach flu last week. It was evil. So last week was basically worthless. But alas, it is a new month. Wait! It is the ground hog day of March! (3/3) So that means I have evaluate my goals and where I stand (one of my 1001 goals).

The Deepak Chopra lecture was amazing last Friday. He came out in red sparkly glasses and bright red sneakers (tennis shoes!) He was an engaging speaker. He mainly talked about his new book, The Third Jesus, and everyone in the audience received a copy of the book. It was so liberating to go there alone. I left feeling my spirit had been renewed. I definitely need to regroup and refocus on those goals. Which reminds me, the Eckhart Tolle webcast is on and I have already missed the first 30 minutes. I am off to go check that out....
